Schools are 1st to close & last to reopen in emergencies, limiting kids & their futures. @HonAhmedHussen: 🇨🇦 must #ChampionChildrenInEmergencies & renew investment in education for them at the #GlobalRefugeeForum!

Schools are the first to close and last to open in emergencies. This both drastically diminishes the quality of life of children living in emergencies and holds them back from forging their futures.
Canada must take a holistic approach to children’s wellbeing to protect them from the devastating impact of climate change, conflict, and more. At the #GlobalRefugeeForum this December, I urge Canada to invest in quality education and #ChampionChidrenInEmergencies!
